DID THE LEFT HELP ELECT BUSH?

There are many groups credited with re-electing President Bush: evagelicals, right-wing ideologues, rural people, Catholic bishops, the moral-values crowd, etc. But the left has to consider what it did to assure his re-election.

A perceptive article by Fred A. Wilcox ("How We Progressives Helpled Elect Bush," The Blanket, November 5, 2004 http://lark.phoblacht.net/faw07114g.html) describes how the left contribued to Bush's victory by dismissing Bush as stupid and laughing at his supporters as dumb hicks.

If the Democrats want to win another election, they should read this article and learn from it!
